UNDERRATED: 'Welcome to Night Vale'( Anton Nickel / December 19, 2013 )
Like "A Prairie Home Companion" with LSD in its drinking water, this addictive, deeply weird podcast is for anyone who likes his or her quasi-radio listening with a surrealist tilt. Plagued by mysterious hooded figures, black helicopters and dinosaur-spewing time portals -- just to name a few -- the twisted desert town chronicled by an often deadpan host resembles the sinister, dryly hilarious dream-child of Art Bell and H.P. Lovecraft. Pictured: Creators of "Welcome to Night Vale" Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor.
